Big Deal, It Looks Bleak


I struggle
to muster hopeful words
about joy in resilience
collective concern
and youth action
but I do believe

Kids 
can see our gifts 
for the burdens they are 
and will demand more
as they know 
rules of society 
are our own making

So let us 
raise a global cheer
that they refuse 
to follow 
the rules
of previous generations
